I just got off the phone with a brilliant singer whose career has been dying a slow death over the last few years (goes back before Covid). She has a wonderful instrument, tons of talent and so much passion. But her recordings don’t make an impact, she has no real fan momentum, her live shows don’t get her any traction…….and it’s killing her career. Thing is, she’s working her tail off: Practicing every day. Writing/recording/releasing new material all the time. Networking. Auditioning for opportunities. Posting on Instagram six times a day. Grinding out YouTube videos. Doing everything she can to get noticed……but she just can’t seem to rise above the noise. Like so many other talented singers, she’s stuck in the talented singer burnout spiral. With so many singers out there all fighting to be relevant, she’s twisting herself into pretzels just to get noticed. But in doing so, the game is over before it’s even started. The bottom line: it all comes back to the voice. If you’re not performing in a way that makes an impact…your story, your music, and YOU will never break through the noise to get the attention you deserve. BUT…what if there were another way?
Throughout my many years of training, I’ve done singing programs and worked with teachers before that DIDN’T do a great job. One didn’t even bother to give me any critique – I spent $200 to blaze through song after song….I can do THAT at a karaoke bar for free! Another program’s information page was totally misleading (and the program was incomplete), and another teacher turned out to be incredibly verbally abusive. It didn’t matter – because I sang around the world and performed for thousands anyway. You know why? Because I DECIDED that I would. The truth is: even 1 small, new idea can have such a big a ripple effect on your singing and your career…..even if executed imperfectly. Of course – as a coach, I make sure I give my singers everything they sign up for AND MORE – but ideas *alone* don’t get you the results. YOUR EXECUTION DOES. DECIDE you’re gonna get a return on the training you invest in. Implement the ideas, take it to out into the world, run with it. Implementation is the only path to breaking in and making a big impact with your voice. Get moving and get your dream! If you
